Angela Bassett and Whitney Houston on "Waiting to Exhale" set

Lifetime has greenlit a movie about Whitney Houston, with the late singer's Waiting to Exhale co-star Angela Bassett to direct. 

Whitney Houston will focus on the R&B diva's troubled marriage to Bobby Brown, starting from the early days of their courtship through the difficult years in the celebrity spotlight. The telepic, planned for a 2015 premiere, will mark Bassett's directorial debut. 

"I have such regard for both Whitney's and Bobby's amazing talents and accomplishments, and I feel a responsibility in the telling of their story," commented Bassett. "Their humanity and bond fascinates us all. I'm beyond excited to have this opportunity to go behind the camera and into their world."
